Transferring research-based innovations and technologies to wine makers, grape growers, and consumers

Working in vineyards, wineries and labs located in all of New York’s major wine and grape-growing regions, extension educators transfer research-based innovations and technologies that benefit wine makers, grape growers and consumers around the world.  Through workshops, demonstration plots, newsletters and more, extension personnel connect theory to practice for those who are new to the industry and longtime producers alike.
